psychology is not garbage science. Unlike some of the opinions voiced by individuals on the topic.
The people with such fanciful thoughts on the topic have never
I'm sorry, but don't tell people as facts things you don't know, especially not about other people you don't know.
Psychology is a garbage science because they do not do rigorous testing and they do not have repeatable results or the repeat is so miniscule and random that it is not something that you should be toying with with so little knowledge in the area especially when applied to peoples' brains. Most people who are in the hard sciences who look at psychology or are psychologists who have a leaning more towards hard sciences will tell you the exact same thing. What little there is of true worth in psychology is common sense and everything else is between randomly helpful to neutral to incredibly harmful.
Although I should specify that Psychology is less garbage than Psychiatry and it because there is a division in Psychology which is more scientific and a division which largely what everyone thinks of when they talk of psychology. That is the practice part of psychology is largely made up of people that are more concerned with using patients as lab rats and status boosters than they are in getting to the correct answer and treating them so they get well.
There are absolutely drugs that can alter the state of mind of individuals, but how these work are largely unknown and have side effects that most of us would not think are worth it. That being said, yeah, sometimes, despite that, the fact that it appears to duct tape whatever problem there is temporarily can be extremely useful in a number of situations, but the combination of unethical practices in diagnosing and giving medication mixed with not knowing or not caring about the consequences causes damage that any ethical person should find reprehensible.
The problem isn't that "sometimes chemical interventions are necessary" it's that the people saying when they are necessary are immoral and dishonest to a large degree and cause tons of damage based on lies.
for example, anyone that looks at the numbers for ADD would find that there is an inordinate amount of male children being diagnosed with a brand spanking new mental illness and prescribed a brand new drug called Ritalin and it just so happened to be around the exact same time that schools started this nonsense of removing recess and giving bucket loads of homework. What happened here is Pop-psyche shills diagnosing male children who instinctually are programmed to move around and learn from doing being complained about by parent and teachers saying these kids won't shut up and sit down for hours and hours and hours and hours... and as a result we now likely have bunches of now adults with personality disorders from their likely being picked for taking medication and neurological degenerate disorders from taking a drug that erodes your nervous system... oh and lets not forget the whole being deprived of a childhood and being told their natural inclinations are disorders.
Do I deny that there is likely some sort of ADD out there, no, but it is well known what happened and that it has been happening more and more since pharmacology for mental disorders has started.
I'm not saying that the idea of psychology is bad, it's the practices and the immoral people involved with it that are bad and need be dealt with so that it won't be garbage science any more, because until that happens that is all it will be, garbage science that likely does more harm than good.
